Lola Nash’s life edges on safe and controlled, containing few people; her brother, Boyd, a handful of friends and the facility for special needs children where she volunteers, called Aaron’s Place. However, a chance meeting shatters her control when she learns someone else’s closely held secret. The kind of secret causing her explicit and sexy dreams, all centering around Wes Thompson; known as Adonis in the ultra-exclusive world of the sex club, Olympus. Wes is intrigued by the voluptuous beauty who won’t give him the time of day. Like the God he emulates, he has never been the type to give in when he wants something or someone; Lola is exactly what he wants. Is Lola the one that can bring a God to his knees or will Wes conquer her, and then walk away as planned? Is the chance at love worth the cost of giving up everything you hold important? When the cards are down, will Wes and Lola call or fold.
My Review: 5+ because it leaves me wanting to be a better person and Wes is HOT and makes me melt!
I am a Hamden lover. One might even say I am a bit obsessed with the character named Dylan. I’ll let you in on a little secret I think I have falling in love with Wes and he is giving Dylan a run for his money in my favorite Hamden Hottie. I have loved this series from the first book, Three of Hearts. One of the things I love most about W. Ferraro’s writing is that the characters are so real. She isn’t afraid to have the curvy female lead who can be just as sexy as the bean poles and the stories center around family. Not just blood family but the friends are so close and care so much for each other that they are one big family. This one is by far the steamiest of the series and Wes is so HOT. Not only is he sexy and a little mysterious but he has a heart of gold and he knows what he wants and goes for it with all he has. I don’t want to spoil anything but they way he excepts things just made my heart melt and I couldn’t help but fall in love with him a little more each time. Lola is the woman who doesn't realize she is gorgeous and sexy and has the curves in all the right places which drives the men nuts. She loves her brother Boyd with everything she has. She volunteers at a center for special needs kids and between her and Aimee, the lady that runs the center it just makes you want to be a better person. Wes wants Lola even if he gets more than just her love. W. Ferraro brings the Hamden favorites of Seth, Dylan, and their families back and adds to the ever growing Hamden Family with Wes and Lola's story. She also tosses in some new characters like Jax, Aimee, Matt and Boyd. I have high hopes for these new characters to return in future Hamden books. This story not only has the love story of Lola and Wes but also the love of friends, and family. It is an emotional story of love, loss, friendship, and sibling love that if you don't have you wish you did and if you do have then it makes you realize that it is a special bond you have. By the time you finish you feel like you are part of the group of friends and you wish you could just pack up and move to Hamden so you can continue your relationship with this wonderful group of people because they are more than just characters they are friends. Great job once again can’t wait for more.
Here is who W. Ferraro think of for Lola and Wes
Here is my dream cast for Three of Diamonds. Not everybody but just a few of the important characters and some of my personal favorites.
